Michael Morton will remain York City manager for the upcoming season
Morton replaced David Webb as manager in February and the club struggled to survive in the Vanarama National League, retaining their division status after a 1-1 draw with Notts County on the final day of play.
Morton has already confirmed he has started a recruitment plan for the club and will guide York into the 2023/24 National League season in August.
“There is no change in the way we ended the season. I think we’re all moving in the right direction and trying to do the right thing for the club,” Morton said.
“It’s a real honor for me to continue to lead the club and to keep trying to take it forward.
“It won’t be an easy challenge as there is still work to be done, but everyone behind the scenes is working hard to lay those foundations and help the team thrive.
“I am looking forward to.”
Morton wants to bring his own style of play and philosophy to the club, saying: “The biggest thing you will see is a different style of play, but ultimately we will not deviate from the main goal of winning the games.”
“We can play really good football and lose games, so we have to find the right balance, play the right football and get three points at the same time.”
“I put together a recruitment plan for the club. We’ve been working hard to figure out what caliber of players we can sign. We know we don’t have a huge budget, so we need to be a little smarter about the kind of players we can sign.
“I gave them the style of play we want and now it’s just up to us to get four or five of them over the line to help the squad we have at the moment.”
The club also confirmed that Tony McMahon and Joe Stead will remain on Morton’s coaching staff as assistant manager and goalkeeping coach.
